The Stark Binary of Our Digital Future
The conflict in Ukraine has indubitably demonstrated what some nations have been warning about for years: that all systems and platforms are driven at their core by the politics and mores of their masters. Did the past year witness the final indictment of technology neutrality?
Countries and collectives the world over are working to reforge the channels along which technologies and data flow, challenging global digital incumbents. More importantly, decision makers at the regional, national, and sub-national level are beginning to interrogate what we implicitly accept as the “right” narrative on our relationship with technology. Just as nations seek to diversify and build resilience into supply chains, the landscape of ideas must be made robust through the questioning of dominant narratives and facilitate meaningful choice in the digital realm.
CyFy 2022 will gather thought leaders, policymakers, technologists, and civil society to examine the narratives and currents marking our relationship as individuals, communities, states, and enterprise with new and emerging technologies. The aim through the range of formats at the conference is to engage in critical foresight to shape policy, normative, and systemic responses to both established trends and signals of change.
